Thoughts 

My mom had some friends over recently, so she asked me to bake something new and different. I chose to try this cake out, and I was pleasantly surprised. Everyone really enjoyed this cake.

The flavor of beets is undetectable in it. The cake is moist and fluffy. The chocolate chips are optional. My mom said she would prefer it without, but I liked the chocolate addition.

This cake was very easy and quick to make. It is perfect as dessert with some tea or coffee.

Enjoy 🙂

  1. What a great idea! With inspirations like this, your bakery draws ever closer. Aesthetically, beets give the chocolate a nice blush. In fact, this looks a bit like red velvet cake, only much healthier. Superb!

  2. Oooo! I’m excited to try this. I’ve been looking for an actual Red Velvet recipe that uses beets for its signature red flavor, and trying to find that recipe is like searching for the elusive jackalope. Maybe this is a start?!?!
